Ambassadors of Hope is our school-aged program aimed at “confronting the stare” by familiarizing children and youth with people who live with disabilities or mental illness.
We invite schools to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity where students (5th grade and up) can build new connections and friendships while learning to walk alongside someone who lives with a disability or mental illness.
Each December a choir of 6th grade students from Ada Christian School visit the 36th Street Day Programs to sing Christmas carols and share in the joy of the season. At the 2016 visit, one client especially got into the spirit when he stood next to the choir director and mimicked her hand motions, to the delight of both the students and the director. When the children were done singing, that same client high-fived all 48 students to thank them for coming. Afterwards, the choir director said this is always her favorite concert to give each year because of the positive impact it has on her students.
